Hold That Thought

First Pancake

Knowing and not knowing

This week I've been thinking about knowing (and not knowing). Here are three things on that theme to help turn overthinking into expert thinking…and action!

  1. The First Pancake Principle – How to get started (and keep going) on creative projects, by Jason McBride
  2. Everyone knows something you don't. Even the naysayer – thoughts on the value of negativity, by me
  3. Everything is experience – another one by me!

Extra thoughts…

Two articles from me this week, as I've been doing more writing than reading lately.

I don't have an “unthinking” link for you all this time, but I have been enjoying some non-work things, such as writing down what I'm looking forward to each evening in my Plantura plantable calendar. And once a week, that thing is a new episode of Shōgun, from FX. Always a thrill to enjoy something so well made!

What have you been enjoying this week?
